Differences Among Mental Health Professionals

Mental health professionals play a significant role in treating a range of mental health issues. However, the level of care that they provide differs depending on education and the type of license they hold. Review the following categories to ensure that you are aware of what each professional provides.

Licensed Professional Counselors

These professionals have extensive training and are licensed after obtaining a master’s degree and receiving post-master’s clinical supervision. Licensed Professional Counselors may also hold doctorate degrees which is beneficial in academia roles for teaching counselors-in-training.

They provide mental health assessments, diagnoses, and therapies. These specialists cannot prescribe medication. Dr. Johnson is a Licensed Professional Counselor.

Marriage and Family Therapists 

These professionals are licensed after obtaining a master’s degree and supervised post-master’s clinical supervision. Marriage and family therapists may also receive doctorate degrees for academic positions. They evaluate clients, provide diagnoses, and therapy.

Therapy is mostly comprised of couples counseling and family therapy. Please note that marriage and family therapists cannot prescribe medication.

Clinical Social Workers 

These professionals also have an abundance of training and are also licensed after obtaining a master’s degree and undergoing post-master’s clinical supervision. Clinical Social Workers may also earn doctorate degrees.

These professionals receive their license after earning a doctorate degree. Psychologists may provide assessments, diagnoses, and therapies.

The majority of their work includes psychological testing. An example of this is intelligence testing for educational or career purposes, such as the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) or the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC).

In some states (Louisiana, New Mexico, Illinois, and Iowa), Psychologists who have received additional training have prescribing privileges.

Because a Psychiatrist’s main role centers on providing medication, very few provide therapeutic services.

Other Providers

Many other professionals also play a role in providing mental health services, such as Psychiatric Nurses, Mental Health Technicians, Physician Assistants, and other professionals.

Aside from a Psychiatrist, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants can also prescribe psychiatric medications under supervision or in collaboration with a Psychiatrist.
